Kristiana turns 4!!

Our baby turned 4 and she was SO excited for her special day!
 She started off her special day with a free Dutch  Bros smoothie and a shopping trip to WalMart to spend her birthday $.

 In the afternoon she had a wonderful, fun My Little Pony birthday with all of her friends (there were approx 20 kids!) It was a super fun time with outdoors water games, yummy Pony treats and time with friends

Father's Day ~ June

Father's Day 

After church, we enjoyed a nice, relaxing afternoon at dad and mom's.  The kids had fun playing in the water and it was a good day to celebrate the amazing dads in our lives!!!


Meet Missy!  In June we got a new mini schnauzer and she's been a wonderful addition to our family! She loves to go for rides, be by the kids, snuggle and go for walks.  We just love her so much!!

BBQ at Lake Lowell ~ June

On a Saturday afternoon we met my parents at the park by Lake Lowell and had a bbq.  It was a nice to be outside in the warmer weather and the kids had fun playing in the shore of the lake.  Mom and dad brought Bubba too and, as always, he was so adorable and happy!

Deer Flat Refuge Center

Deer Flat Refuge Center  ~ June
 We had a fun morning hiking in the Deer Flat Refuge Center with our friends Jen, Elle, Natalie, my mom and Bubba.  It went around some of Lake Lowell and we were able to see for miles.  We also had a picnic lunch and spent some time in the educational building. I forget that we live just lives from the lake and refuge center; we should go hiking there more often!

Professional Race Photos

Grand Teton Half Marathon, Jackson Hole Wyoming

The first weekend in June (June 5-7) mom and I headed to Jackson Hole, WY., for the Grand Teton Half Marathon.  We had been looking forward to this event for months!  We stayed in the Village, at a hostel, just outside of town and nearby the event.  The whole area was absolutely beautiful!!!
 Upon arriving Friday afternoon, we picked up our race bibs and checked out the area of our hostel.  The Village is a resort type of place... skiing in the winter and hiking/biking in the summer.

 The race began early Saturday morning.  It began in a recreational area and finished at the Grand Teton Golf Course.  The course was quite difficult due to higher elevation and the slight climb.  All in all, mom and I both placed in the top half for our age group!

It was an experience I'll never forget!  The views of the Tetons during the race were breathtaking and the overall race was a fun time.
